Omar Raschid Chawdhary is a Houston native and graduated from Stratford High School. Omar attended the University of Texas at Austin, where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics in May 2009. After college, Omar attended South Texas College of Law where he received his Doctorate of Jurisprudence in May 2012 and became a member of the State Bar of Texas in November 2012. Following law school, Omar became an associate attorney for Matthews Lawson, PLLC, where he focused on business litigation for both plaintiffs and defendants. Here, Omar handled all aspects of the litigation process, and in doing so, Omar realized his clients' success is of the utmost importance and his passion belongs with individuals rather than businesses.
With his sights set on making a difference as an attorney, Omar joined The Webster Law Firm in early 2014. Omar is young and eager to advocate on behalf of those who have been wronged and will stop at no end to try to help his clients become whole. Since his start at The Webster Law Firm, Omar has tried over a dozen lawsuits. He has tried several lawsuits to a jury in Houston, but also tried a breach of contract case to a judge in Las Vegas, Nevada as well as a pedestrian auto wreck case to an arbitrator in Tucson, Arizona. In addition to trying these lawsuits, Omar has settled over millions of dollars of cases with The Webster Law Firm.
While working at The Webster Law Firm, Omar attended the prestigious Trial Lawyers College in Dubois, Wyoming. This is a 24 day course focused on honing in trial skills and understanding yourself as a person. Only a select number of applicants are accepted to this program every year. This college is hosted by Gerry Spence and allows attorneys from all different backgrounds to learn the emotions behind our type of practice. This was an experience Omar will never forget as he believes it will help shape the lawyer he strives to be.
During his law school career, Omar was active in South Texas' advocacy program, where he competed in several national competitions. Omar was also the inaugural recipient of the Ryan R. Euan Memorial Award Scholarship. This award is given to a graduating student who, in the opinion of the Dean and faculty, demonstrates an ability to excel scholastically while also exhibiting a balance of work and family life. Concurrently, during law school, Omar began his legal career as a law clerk at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Friend. With a complete focus on personal injury litigation, Omar became passionate about helping those in need, and his clerkship instilled his dedication to devote his legal practice to helping others. While at Abraham Watkins, Omar met Jason Webster when the two participated in a trial together.
In Omar's spare time, he enjoys traveling, playing golf and spending time with his family and friends. Omar is also a long-time Houston Texans season ticket holder and enjoys watching his Texas Longhorns play on Saturdays.
